Katy Perry Gives Advice, and Gives Away Her Shoes, on 'Extreme Makeover' (VIDEO)

Katy Perry Gives Advice, and Gives Away Her Shoes on 'Extreme Makeover'Singer Katy Perry was very poor when she was growing up. She still remembers being so broke that she had to borrow clothes in order to go out at night. Which might help to explain her actions on the premiere of 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition' (Sun., 7PM ET on ABC).

The goal tonight for Ty Pennington and his crew is to build a new house for seven young women. These girls are scholars who have been accepted into 'Boys Hope Girls Hope' -- a Baltimore program that accepts gifted students who come from difficult backgrounds.

The boys in the program already have their own housing, but due to the economic crisis, the girls have been waiting three years to get their own residence hall. Katy and other celebs show up to talk to the girls while their new home is being built.

And the young women can't quite seem to believe that they're meeting Katy Perry. This is the reaction of Destine, age 12: "AAAAOOOOH!"

Ms. Perry tells the girls never to give up on their dreams. "I came from nothin'. I didn't have nothin'. My parents, like, sometimes we would eat from the Food Bank." The singer continued: "You could come from the craziest place ... where it seems like nobody around you [believes] in you. ... You just gotta believe in yourself, because I think everybody can achieve their dreams."

Then, while Perry was still going on with her speech, she was interrupted by Shaolin, age 14. "I like your shoes," Shaolin said. And since it turns out that she and Shaolin wear the same size, Katy handed over her high-heeled pink pumps. "You can have 'em," she told Shaolin, while handing them over for good. Aw. Katy even gave away the shoes off her feet. Nice.

So in conclusion -- good job, Katy! It seems like she might even be allowed back on 'Extreme Makeover' in the future -- although it remains debatable as to whether she will ever get to go on 'Sesame Street' again.

Seriously Katie...there are days when you're onstage...and days when you can put your nipples away. Please start showing some maturity.

This woman is a tramp. She pushed the envelope of an age old whoelsome show and lost. If she didnt have fame she would be a trailer tramp or bar whore. I hope Karma makes her lose everything.. If we keep letting ignorant tramps rule our minds like this is ok for our children to watch, we are just as guilty as her in changing the way things are. You make little girls believe its ok to dress this way and then every pedafile looks at them like a fat man looks at a steak. You dress your daughters up to be the one parent that makes an excuse why their daughter was taken and raped and killed. Its called responsibility and accountability, and anyone that thinks what she did on sesame street is ok is just playing devils advocate and I personally wouldnt have a problem knocking sense into you since that is all you understand anyway.... ignorance.

The women who gave Katy Perry a hard time about the whole elmo deal. You women who squaked so much about her boobs that you set aside the true selfless side of katy perry. To all women who gave katy perry a hard time you can go piss off. For katy perry who did the extream makeover long before the elom show and gave her shoes right off her feet is a true heart of gold. Many guys like katy perry because she is a kind hearted person and yes of course she is hot, but her true beauty is her selfless heart who understands what it means to be poor. Katy perry did not forget where she came from.

another example to young girls, just present yourself as naked as you possibly can in society and you'll go far. this of course is why I can't sit here for more than a few minutes after firing up a music program that the daughters of the world don't start hitting on me to come to their website and see them naked and playing with themselves. this is so sad and of course why the sex offender population is growing in leaps and bounds. Three just on my street, dozens in the immediate area, children are not safe to leave the house and to think that postins like this from me get responses like the other day where others actually wanted to have my post banned because I try and bring this to the attention of the mothers of America who have pretty much failed this generation, and the past generation, and will probably fail the future generation and get someone to barge into their daughters room and take that webcam away from her, make her close her legs and put her clothes back on and stop whoring herself for the men of the world, THEN and maybe THEN she might be worth something as a wife, mother, and moral individual in the community, right now she's worthless.

The scene with Katy Perry was nice except that her neckline was so low it was just barely holding those puppies in! Nice influence for 12- and 14-year olds. Same thing with Sesame Street. Have somewhat a decorum of modesty when you are dealing with children.
